Summer School “Liberal Values for Belarus and Ukraine”

Summer School “Liberal Values for Belarus and Ukraine”

Hereby we would like to invite you to our upcoming Summer School “Liberal Values for Belarus and Ukraine”, which will take place in Hlibivka near Kiev from 16th to 20th July 2014.

The Summer School is a follow-up to our yearly trainings on the basics of “Political Ideology and Theory” to further improve the knowledge of political youth activists on liberal ideology and liberal values. This event will focus on subjects that can be only touched briefly during the introductory training, such as modern problems of market economy, individualism vs. the modern social state, minority rights, womans rights, the European idea and its problems etc., as well as practical issues such as the role of political programs. The general idea of the event is to train young Belarusian and Ukrainian activists a more detailed insight on liberal ideology and liberal values in a modern society and compare them to the situation in Belarus and Ukraine. Of course the event is not only open to participants in our introductory trainings or political activist. If you have a strong interest in forming a liberal society in Belarus or Ukraine you are welcome to apply for this event, no matter if you are an independent individual or active in a political organization or an NGO.

To achieve this the event will focus on contextual learning and best-practice transfer but also on the active input of the Belarusian and Ukrainian participants. International trainers will introduce the to the topic by using practical examples from the European Union or their home countries and help the participants to analyze the situation in their own countries to find suitable solutions and policies towards a more liberal state.

The call is open until the 30th of June 2014.
